Station Identification – Testing, Testing!

[Post #541] Is this thing still on? If you’re able to read this then it means I have survived my recent untold misadventures into the unknown! I haven’t made one of these station idents in nearly two years, so here we go . . . Hello and welcome. Thank you for visiting and taking the time to read anything I post here. I think all writers write with the hope — hell, the dire need for a reading audience and I am no exception, despite the recent dearth of postings here of late. Obviously this is my little humble corner of the Interwebs and blogosphere where I’ll pretty much muse and rave about the creative things I’m doing or consuming, which is predominantly reading, writing and rocking out to the music I love, and everything in between. My posting activities here have been very sporadic the last year or so, but I intend to use this space more regularly starting this week. Curious newbies can learn more about me here. This blog contains a number …

Station ID and Warm Welcome

~ In lieu of the weekly Sunday Thinkbook this week ~ This is #RUCKOLOGY @ brandonrucker dot com. Welcome and thanks for reading. It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these kinds of check-ins. The page has picked up quite a few followers in the past year since, that I thought I’d do a quick shout-out to welcome all the new folks here and to thank you all for following. Brief history about this blog: I finally got around to starting a blog in late 2009 just as I started publishing poetry and short fiction again. Inspired by the semi-daily blogging of British author Warren Ellis (who has now moved on to a weekly newsletter instead), I wanted to have a public forum with which to share my creative exploits and muse about this n’ that. Typical reasons, right? The other main purpose was to have a place where I am forced to perform as a writer on a regular basis because writing publicly forces you to stay sharp and always write well. I …

Check-In and Station Identification

Firstly, thank you for visiting and taking the time to read anything that I post here. No writer writes without the expectation – no scratch that – the dire, insatiable NEED for a reading audience. Any writer who writes publicly expects to not do so in a vacuum nor toil solitarily in a void of obscurity. So that said, I greatly appreciate your clicks, your eyes and your precious time. When I first set out to create Ruckerpedia, which is the natural successor to the old Brandon Rucker Writes blog (2009-2014) over on Blogger, the initial compulsion was to create a kind of one-stop-shop, or comprehensive resource and online headquarters for yours truly. All details and connections to my fiction (new and old), journalism, commentary, creative nonfiction, musings, poetry, music, etc. And that’s still the case, but I also would like to make this more of a daily living, breathing thing, similar to my Facebook timeline and group pages, which unfortunately get the bulk of my online time due to their aspects of community and …

Check-in and Station Identification

Hope everyone had a happy Mother’s Day yesterday.  This month’s The Rucker Report update takes a bye week this week while I tend to a long laundry list of things to do, both creative and mundane (and some of which is technical and will be included in the details later).  May’s TRR will properly transmit next Monday (however you can expect other posts of interest this week as I increase activity here at Ruckerpedia HQ).  Until then y’all be good to one another . . . and here’s a Station ID for the fun of it. – BLR

The Rucker Report for Week 6 of 2015 arrives tomorrow afternoon. Until then…Be well. Be merry. Stay warm. Have a Happy Monday tomorrow. I know, that’s a tall order because Mondays are quite formidable bastards.

Station Identification

Here at Ruckerpedia things are constantly changing because we (the staff of one) believe in continuous improvement, which means we are always working to make this place more inviting and hospitable. Recently the Fiction – Micro wing was been furnished, so be sure to check that out. There are seven pieces archived there, each under 400 words. Next on the agenda is moving furniture into these other rather empty and pitiful wings of this dreadful manor: Fiction – Flash, Fiction – Excerpts, Journalism, Lyrics/Poetry as well as maybe adding some end tables and futons to the Music lounge (actually what it really needs is a jukebox. We’ll get right on that). At some point the Bylines and Covers wings will be combined into one. That last wing on the end there, Notebook, will get more carpet laid here and there from time to time, but really, the best place to catch that traction is over at Hello, Blank Page. Other than that, if you need to reach the always on-the-go staff, you can do so with …
